8.4.7 – 9 Fabricate doublers for firewall

Today I diligently followed the instructions and made the doubler for the brake pipes…

Next step in the instructions it says to make another doubler which I did without thinking…

Once I made the part according to the drawing I then wondered what this doubler was for. A quick look through some of the other drawings and I found this…

Wait, what!? The words “if req’d” staring back at me. Why would it be “if required”? Well, because you only need this plate if you are using the Van’s fuel pump. I’m planning on using the Andair fuel pump as this is NOT required!!! Doh!!! Hey ho, it shows how important it is read ahead in the plans and understand every step fully. Lesson learned, probably!
